#15 Finding a Community for Crochet Enthusiasts Like You

Finding a crochet community could be the best thing you ever did for yourself.

We need to celebrate all the wins – finishing a project that took months to create; memorizing that stitch pattern; or launching your first design. No matter what the situation, if you’re excited about it you need a companion to celebrate with.

When we’re extremely passionate about something, we want to share it with someone and If your spouse, friends or family aren’t as into crochet as you are, you can feel somewhat alone in your hobby. Over time that can lead to less “crojo” and less motivation to keep doing what you love. So finding a community for crochet enthusiasts is the best thing you can do for your hobby!

What about the situations where you need help? I always ask my husband for help with mathematical issues related to designing (he’s kind of a math whiz!) and I’ve chatted with my sister for color inspiration (she’s a graphic designer and has a great eye for that) but at the end of the day, neither of them can help me with crochet related questions. I’ve had to solve every problem all on my own. I’m not saying this is a bad thing because it led me to a much higher understanding, but things would have been easier had I been a part of a community that I could turn to for help.
